One of my Drs has prescribed phentermine for me for weight loss. The first month, only 15 mg per day. I think it's helping me say no to some of the things that I have a hard time with, When this prescription runs out, he'll give me the full dose. It did make me a little jittery at first but it seemed to assimilate quickly. I seem to have a little more energy (no, I'm not bouncing off the wall, but I am getting stuff done). I'm not so preoccupied with food. I've been taking it for about 3 weeks and I'm down 2 1/2 lbs. I'm sure that is mostly water as I was also wearing compression socks, but I'll take what I can get. The thyroid scare is over. I think the endo was surprised that everything returned to normal; I guess it wasn't the results he expected. I'm just grateful. Next Friday I have an EMG test scheduled and will get an updated report on my back. Then maybe I can relax and enjoy the holidays. It's usually my favorite time of year. This year I may even put up some decorations.
